Interview and Gardening

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Lots to tell you about today, so I'm just going to plunge on in!

First up - have you seen our interview with the verrrrrrrrrry lovely and talented Bark Kent?  Surf on over to Suzuki's blog and check it out!

It was such an honor being interviewed by her!  She so smart and gets right to the heart of all the issues... and she's soooooooo gorgeous!  Ha roo!

Anyroo... a lot of you have said really nice things about all the work I do in the garden and how nice everything looks.  I really appreciate that, as I do work very hard out there.  I was chit-chatting with some of my buddies yesterday, and I think it was Steve or Kat who said that I must have a green paw.  Well, actually, that's quite true!  Check it out:

As Sitka pointed out, green toe nails, too.  Ha roo roo roo!  I do try my best to help Mom keep our gardens looking good!  So you can imagine how shocked I was when she accused me (me!) of sticking my snooter in the geraniums and trying to eat them.  WHAT?!?!

Who, me?  Snooter in the geraniums?  What?

Can you believe she'd think such a thing?  Look at me - I'm the picture of innocence!  And you know, she tried tagging me as a geranium eater a couple years ago (check it out at this link).  If she's going to be that way about it, I told her she could get Davy to help her plant the tomatoes!

Sadly, she did.  That's OK with me, though.  I mean, she saw this kind at the plant place and didn't even buy any:

Husky Cherry Red!

Ammy and I thought they'd be perfect, but Mom said something about them being little (then why do they call them "Husky"?) and she wants big, ol' baseball-sized tomatoes.  Hrumph!  It still would have been cool.  And I just know Ams would have thought up a million jokes to tell about them!

Here's Dave helping with the tomato planting:

Yeah... that looks good, Mom.  Keep on doing what you're doing.

You may wonder why he's on the deck, instead of out in the garden or yard.  Well... we're trying something new this year:  trying to actually grow something and not have to worry about how much of it Oswald and crew are going to eat.  So... this is what our tomatoes look like:

Ammy said to tell Huffle they're tomatoes "Down Under".  Ha roo roo roo!  Get it?  They're upside down... and Huffs lives in Australia... ?  Ha roo roo roo!   She just cracks me up!  Think what Ammy could have done if those were Husky Cherry Reds!

Dave and Mom did a pretty good job with those; we'll keep you posted on how they grow.  And now... I'm off to help water the stuff out front.  But one more accusation from Mom and me and my green paw are going to head to the OP Pack's house, so I can help Thunder with his Stuffie Tree.  I just KNOW my gardening efforts will be appreciated there!

Play bows,


  1. It was a great interwoo!

    As always, your gardening skills are pawfekht!


  2. Loved the interview - learned so much about all of woo. I don't believe your mom is trying to blame you for the geraniums... must have been a squirrel!!! ;)

  3. Thunder welcomes all the help he can get as all his efforts have failed. Be sure to let us know how your tomatoes work out because Oswald eats all of ours too. In fact, Mom caught the Mr. and Mrs. out front today trying to get at some of her flowers.

    Woos, the OP Pack

    Pee Ess, great interview!!!

  4. Hi Zim
    We have to go read your interview with Bark Kent.
    Great work with the gardening - we were particularly impressed with Dave helping with the tomatoes!
    It is of course important to pace yourself - Husky tomatoes - now that is very interesting we will need to look out for those.

  5. I want some husky cherry red tomatoes!


  6. Are you sure there are tomatoes in there? Those things look scary to me. Like maybe they are aliens???

    Be careful!


  7. Oh my, your pack of 4 are beautiful! I love this breed, especially their eyes! I am happy to meet you and look forward to keeping in touch. Feel free to stop by and meet my Africa! I am adding you to my blog list.

  8. Hi, Zim!
    I read your interview! It is pawesome!
    I know you are so good gardening!
    Green paw?? Literally!
    I hope those tomatoes grow perfect!
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Hi Zim,

    Loved that picture of your "green paw" - and I like to see that you and Dave help out in the garden just like I do - nobody realises what hard work it is lying there and supervising!! :-)

    Can't wait to see those tomatoes!

    ps. fantastic interview!

  10. My mom too is trying out tomato plants this year but she did get the small ones. Almost did the upside down thing but I think you should come over and help her out, she sort of has a black thumb when it comes to plants. he he=)

  11. One of our Airedale buddies planted tomatoes upside down last year! hummmmmmmm, we think it might have been Penny, Poppy and Patches? We just planted our tomatoes today but they're all right side up!
    We off to read your interview with Bark!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  12. Hahahahaha! All of your gardening skills are just great! Mom and my Daddy like the little tomatoes for snacking but a neighbor gave us a lot of big ones so that's what we planted. We have never tried the upside down hanging type. I hope they grown really well for you!


    prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs and tail wags,
    Zeke, Sushi, Tiger Lily and Ruckus

  13. Ha roo Ammy! That's a good one!

    Hey Zim, we say there is no way you could have been eating the geraniums. Oswald planted that petal on you.

    Huffle Mawson, off to read the interview right now.

  14. Fabulous gardening skills! How do you water those down under tomatoes? Off to read your interview...

  15. Arr mommee killz green tings.

    Wee hope yur mommee duz better than arrs!

    Gus and Waldo

  16. That was a great interview! :)

    Hmm...I think you're being framed. I don't believe that you would do such a thing! Please keep us pupdated on the tomatoes because mom was thinking of buying one of those!


  17. Your pack is just always into something over there! Jack gets green paws after dad cuts the grass here. And not to worry, we KNOW woo wouldn't hurt those geraniums or anything else! We believe woo!

    Woos & a-roos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

  18. Momma wanted to reach out and tickle your toes!!!

    husky tomatoes?
    how cool is THAT?!

    i really liked the interview, and am looking forward to learning more about you all - since i'm a "newb" when it comes to "dogs with blogs" (well - to EVERYTHING, really, since i'm only 10½ weeks old), i have a lot of catching up to do!


  23. We cannot wait to see how those tomato plants turn out. mom is growing tomatoes in her aerogarden right now along with mini jalapanos!

  24. I wonder if the tomatoes will grow long enough for you to taste test some of the tomatoes? I do think you should have gotten at least one of the husky tomatoes!


  25. we liked the picture of the "green thumb" hehehe! great post as usual! we think the gardens are beautiful too! you are always good helpers!!!

  26. tell your mommy you were just checking the plants - we help plant stuff with mommy too - woodrow even helps dig the holes where mommy tells him to - i just dig everywhere
